Helping others in times of need is a responsibility of all Christians. Galatians 6:2 exhorts us to "bear one another's burdens," which is not an easy task. Effective Christian Counseling, presents in a practical way the basis for offering this kind of help. This book brings together the characteristics of psychological and Biblical soundness, using Biblical terminology that is practical and topical for Christian counselors or other advisors. Pastors and other Christian leaders, especially, will benefit from the simplicity of this book, which presents a Biblical perspective on the ministry of counseling.
